Forgotten NY was the first recipient of the Outstanding NYC Website award by the Guides Association of NYC in March 2015! Forgotten New York is a program of the Greater Astoria Historical Society, a non-profit organization supported by the Long Island City community. This tiled sign points to the PATH train in the IND station at 14th Street and Sixth Avenue. Recent renovations in the Times Square underground complex have uncovered a sign apparently pointing the way to Canarsie.
Before being painted over, tiled signs at the IND Chambers Street station, serving A,C and E trains, indicated that an H&M connection could be made there. Each of these photos, both taken a number of years ago, demonstrate that NYC subway signage was a lot more informative in years past.


A mid-1970s Transit Authority map is still in place, albeit behind a modern map and shielded behind plexiglass! Designed by Massimo Vignelli and first seen in the late 1960s, the former Transit Authority map was decried for its physical distortions and its difficulty to read.
The first edition of NYC Access, which came out in the early 1980s, featured this unique subway map designed by Vignelli and based on his earlier design. The present map may be clearer in some instances, but in toto, is a disappointing solution.
A double anomaly occurs at the High Street IND station: Fulton Street at this point has been known as Cadman Plaza West since the late 1950s, while the sign below it pointed the way to the old St.
The irony of the matter is not that you have two signs that say the exact same thing side by side here, but that the newer sign is the one with the spelling and grammatical errors.


The general post office facilties have decamped the Borough Hall area in Brooklyn for the wilds of Ozone Park, but this handsome enamel sign still points the way, and in fact, you can still go to the old place and mail your letter there.
The PATH, which stands for Port Authority Trans-Hudson, used to be known as the Hudson and Manhattan, or H&M.
Since the 14th St Crosstown (L) is nowhere near Times Square, what can this sign possibly be doing here? Years ago, subway signs were much more comprehensive than now and offered every possible conection.
